What is a Neck Lift?
As you age, the skin on your neck may no longer feel firm and tight, but instead may start to sag or wrinkle. When this happens, your neck may appear fuller than normal, and might also have a lack in definition. A neck lift is a procedure in which excess skin is lifted, trimmed, and tightened in order to remove sagging jowls, wrinkles, or that “turkey wattle.” This provides your neck with smooth, uplifted, skin and more youthful contours than before.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
Dr. English will administer local anesthesia, which numbs only the neck area. Once you are fully numb, he will make his incisions, which are typically placed behind each ear to ensure they are well hidden. Your skin will be pulled tight, and any excess will be carefully trimmed away before securing the remaining tissue with sutures. The entire procedure normally takes around two hours or so.
In cases where a large neck is due to excess fat, Dr. English may perform liposuction instead. Neck liposuction involves making very tiny incisions or slits that allow a thin tube to pass through. This tube is used to suction away fat so that it is eliminated from the body forever.
Am I a good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
You may be a good candidate for a neck lift if you are plagued with a double chin or have noticed the skin on your neck has lost its elasticity.
How much does a neck lift cost in Little Rock?
Each neck lift procedure is unique because it is performed with YOU in mind. Since your needs will be different from other patients, it will not be possible to provide you with an exact cost until after you meet with Dr. English the first time. Once he has established a treatment plan, we can then go over the cost and discuss which method of payment might be right for you. We accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to financing through CareCredit® or MedLoanFinance.com.
Cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a neck lift, are generally considered elective, and are therefore not covered under most health insurance plans. As such, our office does not accept any form of health coverage.
